What God Wants Prisoners to Know
By Paul Levin
God Wants You To Know
“For God so loved the world (you), that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever (you) believeth in him should not perish (Hell), but have everlasting life (Heaven).”– John 3:16
Who is God? Why are you here? What is sin? Why must you die? What about eternity? Please read this tract. You will find the answers.
Who is God?
God lives in Heaven. God created the heavens and the earth. Create means to make something from nothing. Man can make things but only God can create. God created the stars. God created the animals. God created people. God made everything. God knows everything. God is good.
Why Are You Here?
God created Adam and Eve, the first man and the first woman. Now all people are born from them. The curse of Adam’s sin nature (DNA) is also inherited upon all mankind. (Romans 5:12). Adam and Eve are the first parents of all living people.
Why Do People Die?
Remember, Adam and Eve lived in a beautiful garden. Many, many trees grew in the garden. God said not to eat from one tree named “The Knowledge of Good and Evil.” If they disobeyed God it would be sin. If they ate from the tree they would die.
Who is the Devil?
The devil was an angel. The devil hated God. The devil did bad. The devil sinned. One day the devil was in a serpent and talked to Eve. The serpent told Eve not to obey God. The devil told Eve to eat from the tree named “The Knowledge of Good and Evil (Bad).” The devil lied and said, “You won’t die.” Adam and Eve did not obey God. They disobeyed God. Adam ate the fruit given to him from Eve. That was the beginning of sin.
What is Sin?
Sin means not to obey God. Sin is breaking God’s laws. Sin is not being perfect in all things. Because of Adam’s sin all have sin and all will die (Romans 5:12). You have sinned and one day you will die.
Because of sin Adam and Eve were cast from Eden and God. One day all who remain in sin “without Christ” will also be cast from God. “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:15).
What Happens at Death?
“The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). God must punish all who remain “without Christ” in sin. “All” includes You. Hell is at the end of a Christless life. Don’t die without Jesus.
Who is Jesus Christ?
Jesus is God’s Son. He is perfect and without sin. He came to remove the curse of sin and restore man to God. Jesus does not want you in Hell. He died as a sacrifice to take away your sins. He was buried and arose as a victorious Saviour to save you. Jesus Christ is now in Heaven waiting for you to receive Him that He can give you eternal life (John 3:16). No one can go to Heaven without Jesus. No one!
“…there is none other name…whereby we must be saved.” – Acts 4:12.
Jesus loves you! If you will believe on Jesus, you can go to Heaven. Heaven is a wonderful place. In Heaven there is no more sorrow, pain, or death. “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new” (Rev. 21:4-5). Jesus is the only way to Heaven and no one can go to Heaven without Jesus – No one! “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by me” (John 14:6). Religions, churches, and good works cannot save you. There are many religions, but only one Gospel. Do you want to know 100% that YOU can go to Heaven? You can know (I John 5:13).
I want to meet you in Heaven, and so does the Lord. Think of it! Today, you can be saved and know you will hear forever in Heaven. Do you now want to go to Heaven? Be saved now!
Pray This Prayer To God:
“Dear God, I now understand that I am a sinner and I am not good enough to go to Heaven. I know I cannot save myself, but I need a Saviour to forgive my sin and save me. I believe that your Son, Jesus, died on the cross for me, that He was buried, and that He rose from the grave to be the Saviour of the world. I now receive Jesus and turn from my sins to live for Him. (John 1:12). Thank you for forgiving me and making me your child. Help me to now serve Him as a Christian! Amen!”
What next? Let others know you are now saved. Seek a Bible-believing church, be baptized, pray, read your Bible and be a faithful Christian.
